2011 NFL Mock Draft: SB Nation Gives Castonzo To Giants In Final Mock

In the early days of mock drafts in anticipation of the 2011 NFL Draft which begins this Thursday Anthony Castonzo, the highly-touted offensive tackle from Boston College, seemed to be the consensus pick for the New York Giants. In recent weeks that has changed a bit, as many analysts see Castonzo going earlier, perhaps to the Detroit Lions at No. 13 or New England Patriots at No. 17.

In the end, though, the final SB Nation Mock Draft find Castonzo [full profile] as the selection for the Giants. This mock includes projected trades, but find the Giants predictably staying at No. 19, and with the movement around the board by other teams Castonzo is still on the board at No. 19. SB Nation's Brian Galliford calls Castonzo's name rather than UCLA linebacker Akeem Ayers, Florida OG/C Mike Pouncey, Wisconsin offensive tackle Gabe Carimi or Alabama running back Mark Ingram.

In doing so, he calls Castonzo "an excellent fit for the Giants."

Do you agree?
